The Collective Review
The age-old lesson of Burgundy rings loud and clear: location, location, location! In this narrow strip of land between the towns of Viré and Clessé, these old vines (the "Vieilles Vignes" in the name is the reference) are a jewel of the region, which is why we've been trying to access this wine for years. If there's one thing we pride ourselves on here at The Wine Collective, it's hunting down the very best in value and quality.
Founded in 1928, the Cave de Viré has become an essential reference point for the great value found in the lesser communes of Southern Burgundy. A respect for nature and terroir is at the forefront of their philosophy, with the winery and vineyards all farmed sustainably and organically whenever possible.
The Chardonnay here comes from a small plot between the two towns of Viré and Clessé, resting on clay-limestone soils. These soils allow for a more decadent and opulent style of Burgundy, while a cool fermentation preserves freshness and fruit aromas. The result is a perfect balance between richness and texture with ripe fruit and white flowers, not to mention the signature Burgundian freshness and elegance.
The asking price for this wine makes it feel like an endangered species in a land of exorbitant price tags and rarities. Try it today and discover the untold joy that can still be found in Chardonnay's spiritual homeland.

Style GuideDry Sweet
Yellow hue with golden glints. A subtle, refreshing nose with floral accents of lime blossom and acacia as well as a splash of lime. A full, rounded, unctuous aspect on the palate. The suppleness of Chardonnay can be glimpsed here, balanced out by a zingy freshness (lemongrass) with hints of mint and fresh citrus fruit.
